Protest Gov. Cuomo: Wage Theft Commander-in-Chief!
January 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmfree
On January 30th, 2020, The Quenn’s City’s Workers’ Center along with us and other co-sponsors are hosting a protest against Gov. Cuomo veto of the SWEAT Bill. Place : Lafayette Square, Downtown Buffalo from 12-1pm. Come out and show your support for working people!
On January 1st, Governor Cuomo heartlessly vetoed the SWEAT bill, showing he would rather aid and abet criminal bosses who refuse to follow the labor law, than workers. The SWEAT bill gives critically needed tools to workers and the Department of Labor to stop bosses from transferring and hiding their assets and leaving workers who courageously stand up to wage theft with nothing. He undermines businesses that comply with the law and promotes criminal ones. Under his leadership, wage theft has ballooned to $1 billion each year. That is $1 billion of workers’ sweat!
With his veto, Cuomo shows he is an accomplice to wage theft and thus a criminal himself. How can we have him in office, one who protects the few over the interests of many?
